Jackie handles it all with his trademark humor and penchant for snapping necks. Perhaps the game’s one true flaw is its difficulty, as you could easily finish it in an afternoon. Still, an afternoon with Jackie Chan is one well spent or so I’ve been told.
Graphically, this is something of a masterpiece on the NES. The cartoon sprites are surprisingly large and very funny. Sound consists of smacking noises accompanied by a fabulous jangling oriental tune. This is very similar indeed to the PC Engine version and that is a definite compliment. Jackie Chan won't win any prizes for originality, but if you like bouncing around a land filled with Kung Fu critters, this is the game for you. One of the best NES games for ages and essential for Jackie Chan fans.

Der Sound paßt gut zum Spiel und ist gut gelungen. Die Grafik ist abwechslungsreich und kann durch viele verschiedene, zum Teil sehr große Gegner begeistern. Ein gelegentlich auftretendes Flackern stört kaum. Alle Jump-And-Run-Fans können bei “Jackie Chan‘s Action Kung Fu“ bedenklos zugreifen. Schöne Wintertage vor dem Monitor sind garantiert.

Selten wurden spielerisch so intelligent ausgetüftelte und grafisch unterschiedliche Levels geboten - und die nicht zu knapp. Von der Steuerung, über die Platzierung der Feinde bis hin zu innovativen Endgegnern sorgt Jackie Chan für hochwertige Spielkost.
While the graphics are mostly fantastic, some areas can become confusing when flatness and color choice make determining foreground and background difficult. The loveable Jackie Chan makes a great hero for a very fun game.

What more needs to be said? Criminally underrated and often overlooked Jackie Chan’s Action Kung-Fu is a blast and should be purchased by any fan of action and platforming games. Don’t let the stylized anime look dissuade you and miss out on one of the NES’s finest games.

Jackie Chan’s Action Kung Fu is a fun diversion for the brief time that it lasts. The game is bright and full of personality, the platforming is spot on, and the levels are inventive.I wish it was a little longer and more challenging, but that doesn't stop me from replaying some of my other cherished NES games, and I will surely play this one again.

Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, das im übrigen auch für NECs betagte Exotenkonsole PC-Engine erhältlich ist, ist eine gelungene Würdigung des auch bei uns immer beliebter werdenden Action-Darstellers. Zwar hat das Game über die Jahre schon ein wenig Staub angesetzt, doch wahre Fans kann und sollte das nicht abschrecken.

In summary, Jackie Chan’s Action Kung Fu is an average but easy action/platform game with excellent graphics. The variety of different the gameplay was great, but it’s short length was a little bit disappointing and can be completed within an hour.
While the name may not ring a bell at first, it shouldn't shy you away from what is, in reality, a quite good game. Mixing elements from both action games and other popular games, Jackie Chan puts together a challenging assortment of enemy characters and Bosses. Give it a try!
If you're a fan of action-packed fighting games with good graphics and characters on the humorous side, this is one that you'll enjoy.

Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu doesn't strive to be much more than a middle-tier action game. But at the same time, it does an excellent job of giving our hero plenty of bad guys to beat up and backgrounds to see. Even the anticlimactic ending (which involves two people just staring at each other for an uncomfortable length of time) isn't enough to keep me from recommending this NES cartridge. It's a solid action game, but with a name like Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu I just expected more.
